We stayed in Montagu last year and decided for a change in accommodation. I'm glad we did! The welcome we received from Paul & Shirley put us at ease immediately. The room ( No 3) was intimate, cosy, clean . The 2 cooked breakfast that I had reminded me of the eggs we used to get in the past in the UK - large deep orange coloured yolks!! Paul & Shirley advised where we should go and visit, i.e. Arniston (had lunch at he Arniston Hotel) , watched the whales and seal whilst eating our lunch .Also advised which restuarants to visit for our evening meals and on taking their advice we were never disappointed both with the wine & food received. Thank you Paul & Shirley.

We only stayed 1 night as it was a stopover to break the journey as we were travelling on to another destination further afield. We wished we were staying longer as it was so comfortable and welcoming nothing was too much trouble and Paul and Shirley were so helpful on advising and giving suggestions for the next destination that it made our journey much more relaxing.
The room was clean comfortable and so well laid out that it made our stay so enjoyable. Breakfast was superb a great selection to cover all tastes. We can't recommend this lovely guest lodge highly enough. They also give lots of information on where to eat.

I had hoped to get into Robertson or further on our days drive but only made it as far as Montagu and I'm really thankfull I did. The Koo Karoo is a lovely, restful stop. Shirley and Paul are originally from England and have set up this haven for weary travellers. Shirley even has menu's for some of the restaurants in town so you can have a look before you go out and she even called our restaurant of choice to make a booking for us. She advised us the town is totally safe to walk about, even at night and we found it to be so. I am so glad we found this little haven for the night.

We stayed one night at the Koo Karoo, and found it to be a great place to stay in.Paul and Shirley (the owners ) were so kind and helpful. The rooms are very cozy and clean and breakfast was good. Definitely worth staying even more than just one night .

We planned to visit the hot springs at Montagu for some time now, but always reconsidered because of the hotel's ridiculous rates. Than we scanned B&B's in town and selected Koo Karoo. What a pleasant surprise! The rooms are spacious and clean, and will surprise your expectations for a 3-star establishment. Paul and Shirley are great hosts, has a wealth of knowledge about anything and everything around Montagu and are true ambassadors for the town. It's the ideal place to go and relax, take a walk in town in the early evening, and be safe enough to walk back to the accommodation establishment. This facility comes highly recommended; and I'm usually a very critical person.

Room Tip: Look for space and cleanliness...most B&B's in Montagu are overpriced. Koo Karoo is very reasonable and great value for money!

Hello Nicky & Alida
Many thanks for your positive feedback on your weekend stay with us here at Koo Karoo. It was a pleasure to host both of you and offer ideas of places to visit in and around the area of Montagu. We hope that you will make a return visit in the future and that weather conditions will be a little more favourable than this trip! Best Wishes, Shirley & Paul
